I was at Mangapps Railway Museum in Essex in October 2010 (www.mangapps.co.uk) There I found this map showing the railway running all the way from Gwinear Road on the main line to Lizard Town. The Helston Railway are currently relaying track around Trevarno, and in my opinion is is only political will holding up this and other rail projects.
This is about 1921

Mullion Cove The harbour was completed in 1895 and financed by Lord Robartes of Lanhydrock as a recompense to the fishermen for several disastrous pilchard seasons. It is protected from southerly winter gales by two sea walls and the old pilchard cellar and net store are preserved. The owners of the harbour, National Trust, have no plans to further repair the sea walls.
